Don’t you love the P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act ?
A British newspaper is claiming to have evidence that the National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of U.S. customers of Verizon under a top secret court order.
The order, a copy of which was reportedly obtained by The Guardian, was reportedly granted by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on April 25 and is good until July 19.
It requires Verizon, one of the nation’s largest telecommunications companies, on an “ongoing, daily basis” to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the U.S. and between the U.S. and other countries.
The newspaper claims the document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of U.S. citizens were being collected indiscriminately and in bulk, regardless of whether they were suspected of any wrongdoing.
